A Guide to Finding the Best Boat Names

Updated on May 8, 2020

Currently in northern Brazil, I have a passion for traveling and exploring out-of-the-way places. Join me on my travel adventures.


Choosing a Name for Your Boat

You have just found your perfect boat. It has everything you could wish for and more. It's practically shouting, "Buy me, buy me!"

"Wait a minute," you say. "I could never own a boat with a name like that!"

Alas, naming or renaming a boat is not a task to be taken lightly; it requires thought and careful consideration. The name of your boat may reflect the type of boat or something personal to you, or even a mix of the two. Let's take a look at some possible names for different types of boats.

Speed Boat Names

If you have a speedboat or a racing sailboat you may want to opt for a name that is synonymous with speed. This could be something that not only sounds fast but puts fear in your opponent's mind. Let's imagine there's a boat called "Sunshine Seeker" racing against a boat with the name "Greased Lightning." Where would you put your money if betting on a winner?

In the end, it's all about the ability to maneuver a boat at speed and how powerful the engine(s) are, but having a speedy sounding name and a slick appearance never hurts. Here are some examples of suitable names for this type of boat:

  • Lickety Split
  • Greased Lightning
  • Flying Lady (notably from a Rolls Royce)
  • Blew By Ya
  • Breaking Waves
  • Rebel
  • Wake-Up Call
  • Bad Boy
  • Banshee
  • Razor's Edge
  • Renegade
  • Lic-a-dee-Split
  • Silver Bullet
  • Terminator

Imagine any of these flashing in the face of your adversary as you go racing past and into the lead. Satisfying, isn't it?

Sailboat Names

There are two types of sailing—racing and cruising. For those who own racers or fast cruisers, you may want to see the names for speed boats above. For pleasure sailing, you'll find suitable names below. Not surprisingly, the word 'wind' is featured in many sailboat names, though names of clouds can also be used to great effect.

  • Summer Wind
  • Second Wind
  • Wind Dancer
  • Tailwinds
  • Ocean Breeze
  • Peaceful Wind
  • Sailing Free
  • Sails Call
  • Sail Away
  • Cirrus
  • Nimbus
  • Sirocco

You can almost picture the wind filling the sails and hear the water splashing against the bow.

Foreign Names for Boats

The use of foreign names has always been a popular choice, especially among those who want to appear well traveled or wish to conjure up a desire for world travel. That being said, if you're only going to use your boat to cruise in English-speaking areas, perhaps these aren't for you.

  • Carpe Diem (Seize the Day or Seas the Day)
  • La Bella Vita (The Beautiful Life)
  • Ohana (Hawaiian term for extended family)
  • Whãnau (Maori term for extended family)
  • Adagio (Slow Tempo)
  • Adios (Goodbye)
  • Tchau or Ciao (Goodbye)
  • Saudade (longing or missing someone or something)

Fishing boats

Fishing Boat Names

If you're picking a name for a fishing boat, you have many options to choose from. Whether the boat is for charter or personal use, you can select names associated with fishing tackle or simply the pleasure of fishing.

If you offer a boat charter business, the name should reflect the image you are trying to project. No one wants to go luxury cruising on a boat called "Bait Master," but if they are chartering the boat for fishing, then it is a great name.

  • Gone Fishin'
  • Catchin' Dinner
  • Avid Angler
  • Bait Master
  • Reel World
  • Bigger Game
  • Reel Deal
  • Reel Satisfaction
  • Kingfisher
  • Reel-Nauti
  • Fishin' Magician
  • Heron
  • Pelican

How could you not catch the big one with names like these?

Humorous Boat Names

I personally love seeing a boat with a humorous name. To me, it says the people inside are fun people; they are enjoying themselves and not concerned with what other people think about them or their boat. Here are a few of my favorite examples.

  • Broke but Afloat
  • Called in Sick
  • Going Seanile
  • Your Place Oar Mine
  • What's up Dock
  • Sleeping With Oars
  • Loon-A-Sea
  • Sails Call
  • Rockhopper

Relaxing Names for Boats

There is a fast-growing number of boats with names that conjure up pleasant, relaxing thoughts. The idea of sailing away and taking a break from the real world while leaving your problems onshore is a lovely one.

Below are a few suggestions.

  • Hydrotherapy
  • Solitude
  • Mental Floss
  • Placid
  • Escape
  • Solitude
  • Serenity
  • Whisper
  • Dreamweaver
  • Stress Less
  • Kindred Spirit

You can almost feel the pressure of a landlocked life floating away as you cast off the bowlines, leaving your problems on the shore.

Alcohol-Related Boat Names

There are also many boat names related to alcohol, which can be fun as long as you don't draw unwanted attention from the port authorities. For some people, boating and alcohol seem to go together. Here are a few choice names.

  • Three Sheets
  • J & B
  • Kahlúa
  • Beeracuda
  • Shaken not Stirred
  • Comfortably Numb
  • On the Rocks (ideally your drink and not your boat)
  • Wine Down
  • Sip & Dip
  • Sundowners
  • 100 Proof

The Cutty Sark

Mythological Boat Names

Many people prefer to use a name from Greek mythology. Below are a few of the more popular ones.

  • Phaedra (Bright)
  • Adonis (God of Beauty and Desire)
  • Pegasus (The Flying Horse)
  • Poseidon (God of the Sea)
  • Zephyr (God of the West Wind)
  • Boreas (God of the North Wind)
  • Eurus (God of the East Wind)
  • Notus (God of the South Wind)
  • Odyssey (Epic Voyage)

Is It Bad Luck to Rename Your Boat?

The process of renaming a boat is rife with superstition. When trading was done, mainly by ships, each had a reputation. When a vessel arrived in port, it was welcomed, because the locals had developed a relationship with the traders aboard. If a ship changed its name, it was treated with suspicion until it had built up a good reputation.

How to Perform a Boat-Naming Ceremony

If you have purchased a boat and you truly cannot live with the name, you must do the following:

  • Remove everything that has the ship's previous name. Don't forget to check the key chains and life preservers. Stickers with the name may come off with a special cleaner that removes adhesive. Otherwise, you can use a scraper.
  • Notify the Coast Guard of the name change and provide proper documentation
  • Make a speech. Inform the Gods and the boat, of the name change. Splash champagne across the hull. There is no need to smash a bottle on the boat.

Questions & Answers

  • Could you please help me come up with a name for my boat? It has to incorporate Pizza. I own a pizza place.

    One idea would be to start with the words, 'piece of' and replace those with pizza. For example, "pizza heaven", "pizza paradise".

  • Can you help us with a boat name for a pontoon? My husband is retired; USN Sr. Chief, he now works for the Federal Aviation Administration flying over airports to inspect them. We love to putz around our lake, swim and have a few drinks. Our last name is Morehouse. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks for your question. Here are a few ideas for you:

    Fun afloat

    Chill time

    Happy Ours

    Water Haven

    Time flies by

    Memory Maker

    Cruise Mission

    I tried some anagrams of your surname but nothing seemed suitable. I thought about 'Houseless' but that seemed too close to 'homeless' which you aren't.

  • We are want to somehow name our boat in memory of our daughter who died of cancer when she was 10 years old. Her name is Rayanne Marion Dorgan. Would you have any ideas?

    I think Rayanne would be a wonderful name for your boat.

  • What can I name my boat that has something to do with golf or landscaping?

    See if any of these suit your needs: 19th Hole, stroke of luck, or off course. For landscaping, "no more weeding", Eden, Flora, Jardine. Do any of those appeal?

  • Could you help with a name for our new fishing/pleasure boat? My husband is a retired fireman, last name is Sloan and we love Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    I'll have to pass on the Lynyrd Skynyrd angle. Regrading the firefighting angle, how about Code 4 or knot on call.

      First time boat owners. Tried to buy a boat 17 years ago but stopped looking once we found out I was pregnant with our son. Was so happy to find out we were having a boy after the 2 girls and never thought we would ever get a boat.

      Thoughts on names?

      Hi Dena,

      I am not certain if you plan to use this for fishing or just boating.

      Here are a few suggestions.

      Drum n' Bass



      Drum Club

      Playing Drums

      Keepin Time

      Drums Out

      Swing Time

      Rhythm Zone

      I would suggest you throw in a lot of musical words, and the planned use of your boat. Mix and match these words until something POPS off the page at you.

      My husband and I are struggling to come us with a name for our boat. It is a 26ft bow rider. My name is Kimberly and we had talked about Kimberly Ann but our kids shot that down. Our last name is Fitzpatrick (my husband is called Big Fitz) so I was thinking maybe something with our last name. Our wedding song was “You’re the Inspiration” so maybe a name using Inspiration. We love sports as well. So very much in need of help with this.

      The word furacious I made up. It is more of a portmanteau of fur and vivacious, delicious, or something akin to that.

      Regarding the foreign names, if you open up Google or Bing translator and put in meaningful words to you. Such as blessed, adopted, saved, hope, some of the translated words are beautiful.

      I have been reading your articles and felt compelled to write since seeing the creative and helpful ideas and suggestions of boat names.

      If you would be so kind as to help us with some suggestions… we’d appreciate it.

      My husband and I are in our late 40’s and just found each other 6 years ago, marrying last year, We have shared our home and our family for about 5 years and when I say “family” I am referring to our pets. We are HUGE animal lovers and strong advocates for dogs and cats, and for adoption and rescue. We would love to incorporate a name that defines our love of pets and yet leave people inspired and while thinking “wow, that is really a great name!" lol No pressure, right? The boat we are getting is a 24 foot jet boat for relaxing, fishing and maybe some raft pulling etc…

      The boat we are getting is brand new and being built… we are not fancy folks (my husband is a mechanic and shop owner and I am a hospice nurse) yet, this boat is a HUGE expense to us but because of his love of the water and our mutual adoration for our pets… can you give us any ideas?

      Note: our first boat which we purchased 4 years ago is 20 years old. It was inexpensive but we loved it and we even gave it a name though we never got around to putting the name on. Because it was not new, not expensive and not perfect (though perfect to us) we named it ADOPTED. We thought it was pretty cool - who knows? Anyway, we’d love to name this boat and really want it special.

      Please help?

      Thanks so much in advance

      We are hoping to sell our farm and live on a sailboat. I have never been sailing but my husband assures me, I'll love it.

      I'm glad you enjoyed sailing, it was kind of your coworker to invite you.

      I'm pleased you liked the names here, thanks for your visit.

      Hi Gordon,

      I like the name Kingfisher and have added it to the list of names.

      We have 3 different types of kingfishers where I live and they are excellent at fishing. In fact, they have a better success rate than I do with a rod and reel.

      I think many people feel the same way as you do about renaming a boat. If someone is thinking of reselling their boat in the future, then it would be wise to select a good name from the outset. I wonder how many sells are lost because of a poor choice of name?

      Great to hear from you, thanks for reading.

      A subject very close to my heart, Mary. Many interesting names there for lots of different types of boats. The most common name I've come across for a fishing boat is Kingfisher, or some closely associated adaptation thereof. Been out on a lot of boats with names like that. I'm really old fashioned, in one particular respect at least, I'm afraid - and totally frown on renaming a boat under any circumstances. Yes, I know - many say it's superstitious mumbo jumbo. If anyone's going to do it though, you're advice does sound good :)

      There are so many variations to beverage names and it is no secret that boating and alcohol go hand in hand. I think the tolerance of harbor masters varies from place to place for such recreation.

      Hi Kristi

      Sorry for the delay, it was a lot more difficult than I initially thought.

      I think with a little work and wordplay, some of the following may be a good place to start.

      Scotch and Watters, or any beverage normally mixed with water.

      Calm Watters

      Blue Watters

      Watters shed

      Watters Works

      Watters time

      Watters Way

      Divine Watters

      Watters fronts


      Watters Cooler

      Cooler Watters

      stay away from Muddy Watters though.

      Let me know what you finally decide on.

      Thanks for your question.

      Hi Marisa,

      Well, there is nothing like a challenge. Not a lot to go on really but here goes.

      Embees (M Bs)

      mb x 2

      the first part of your name is Mar which is 'sea' in (Portuguese and Spanish)

      Bella Mar

      Or a combination of your husband's name and yours.

      I reckon the boat should be named after you for a few reasons.

      1. Your husband has a boat.

      2. Your husband has you.

      3. Your husband is a gentleman.

      4. Your husband likes a peaceful life.

      5. Boats are always referred to as a female.

      If you are on Facebook, I suggest you throw it out to your connections who know you. They will probably give you some suggestions which are much more personal to you.

      Let me know what you finally decide on.

      Great to hear from you.

      I too love the name, Mental Floss. When we sell our farm, we are seriously considering buying a sailboat and living aboard, hence the idea of this article. One of the yachts we are interested in has an awful name (according to my husband), so it would need to be changed. Oh the discussions we have had over names. It is likely our boat will be called "Nameless" as we just can't agree on one. LOL

      This is a great read with style that flows. It's a while since I read any of your hubs which is very remiss of me. Mental note to catch up with a few more!

      Some of those names might well suit a pug. Banshee, for example, might suit an active one.

      Regarding superstitions, there is often a reason behind most, although as time passes, fewer people remember what that reason was.

      My husband keeps looking at the gaff rigged ships. All I see are a bunch of ropes. Where I have visions of sitting on a catamaran drinking my mug of tea with a good book, he has visions of rolling seas, pitching boats and water spray in his face.

      Some people keep the name and others opt to change it. Just today I was reading about a boat which has had 3 names. Its name, now is January. This was the month the couple were married and also the month they bought their boat. Plus it is also a time of new beginnings.

      Thanks for reading, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

      These are all very interesting names. I did not know that boats could be renamed. I mean, I did believe it was bad luck to rename a boat. Thank you for clearing that up for me. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the reason behind each type of boat name.

      That sounds like a fantastic name for a boat. Many boats and yachts, take their names from mythology. I think it gives them more class to be honest.

      I guess this is as important as naming your special puppy. Enjoyed the hub topic. I saw a yacht the other day with the name, "Diamonds Are Forever!"..wonder who owns it?

      Excellent hub and very well written. I always heard that it was bad luck to re-name a ship. But maybe that's a "Navy" thing. I think I read it in a Napoleonic wars series of British Naval novels.
